End Israeli Apartheid! Open Shuhada Street!

Issa_Ariel.jpeg

We call on UN Secretary General António Guterres and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad to use their influence and power to pressure the state of Israel to open Shuhada Street to all people.

For the past 23 years Shuhada Street, in the Occupied West Bank city of Hebron, has been almost entirely closed to Palestinians. Once a major thoroughfare and thriving marketplace, today Shuhada street is effectively a ghost town for Palestinians. While illegal Israeli settlers move freely and carry arms, Palestinian face an apartheid system of checkpoints, closed military zones, humiliation, arrests, vicious attacks from Israeli settlers and soldiers, and displacement from their homes. Palestinians who have managed to remain in their Shuhada Street houses have had their doors welded shut and must climb down from neighbors' roofs or use back doors to access their homes.

As people concerned with freedom and equality for all people, we ask UN Secretary General António Guterres and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad to use their power and influence to pressure the State of Israel to end the apartheid system of segregation in Hebron and open Shuhada Street!

    Apartheid was wrong in South Africa, and it is wrong in Israel/Palestine.

    Patricia Taylor Apartheid in 2017 is so wrong. It is unbelievable how cruel it is for Palestinians

    to loose land in such an unjust situation. A lot of Israel people had homes in the U.S and chose

    to move to to Israel when they didn’t have to. Now they are taking other peoples land . This must stop now.

    Let’s support justice for Palestinians and end the hypocritical support for Israel’s illegal occupation and oppression of Palestine based on double standards. It would be helpful if our mainstream media actually gave us an honest historical perspective on what has gone on in Palestine for the last 70 years.
